Richard Bach: “A professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit.”
We need the books that affect us like disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us.

Art flies around truth, but with the definite intention of not getting burnt. Its capacity lies in finding in the dark void a place where the beam of light can be intensely caught, without this having been perceptible before.

Screenwriting U asked a great question, a very important one to all the writers who has to ask one himself before his first step..
Guys this opens a path on writing about a character !
Names are terribly important. I spend forever coming up with names. Sometimes a character doesn’t work until I change his name. In Bandits,Frank Matusi didn’t work. I changed him to Jack Delaney and suddenly he opened up.
